Oracle and SUN Today Oracle released its latest version of Solaris technology, the Oracle Solaris 11 Express 2010.11 release. It includes a large number of new features not found in either Oracle Solaris 10 or previous OpenSolaris releases including ZFS encryption and deduplication, network-based packaging and provisioning systems, network virtualization, optimized I/O for NUMA platforms and optimized platform support including support for Intel's latest Nehalem and SPARC T3. In addition, Oracle Solaris 10 support is available from within a container/zone so migration of existing systems is greatly simplified. The release is available under a variety of licenses including a supported commercial license on a wide variety of x86 and SPARC platforms.

Opensolaris had gotten support for the onboard AES encryption in recent Intel chips (Nehalem die-shrink: Westmere) so if you have a laptop with one of the newer i5/i7 you'll get better performance for ZFS crypto if using AES.

Darren Moffat has two good blog posts up about ZFS-Crypto (he was project lead). Obviously posted them to tie in with this release.
